What fertility tests have you completed? Ovulation is just one factor of many factors that can determine fertility. I personally was subjected to a multitude of tests by my reproductive endocronologist, like a process of elimination to determine what might be wrong. I personally had low progesterone levels and slightly elevated thyroid numbers.
Have you been timing your ovulation with opk's to help know the best times to BD? Have you been tracking your bbt's to ensure ovulation has occurred? Are you taking prenatal vitamins (specific vitamins are thought to enhance fertility)? There are so many variables to consider and things to try at home. If you've been trying for more than a year, however, then I'd encourage you to see a fertility specialist. It's important to be positive and know that there's help out there for you and your DH.
Hi, I do use Ovulation kits and have tested my temp. i have had my 21 day test, x ray and my partenr has had a sperm count. I take pre natal vitiamins etc. I have seen my doctor but they say they can't do anything till we have been tryin for at least 3 years as i am young at 32
There could be other things that are hindering you like what Angebelle said..your thyroid, progesterone levels.
I had someone tell me once about many women having a hard time falling pregnant because they are low on Vitamin B. You could even give that a try.
Read up on "Deanna's Plan". It's one of the top posts on this group or you can google it. It's a good plan to follow.
I wouldn't go as far as temping...makes things too stressful.
I original re told me the same that I was good. Had my blood work done and HSG and my DH has his s/a. Soon theafter, I changed my re and they discovered that I had a hormone imbalance. Have them check your hormone levels.
and btw i can't beleve yoru re told you to wait 3 years because you are still young. I know you are not old, but at 32 you shouldnt wait 3 years that would put you at 35yrs and you need to figure out if any you have a problem so you can correct its now, not 3 years from now.
We have been trying just under 3 years now and I take Pregnacare everyday. I have had my blood taken for my 21 day which came back fine twice I've had that done. I've had an X-ray and that also came back normal. My partner has had sperm count and told that is fine. Could it be my weight at 12st 7lbs? I find that hard to believe as my sister in law who is way bigger than me got pregnant after trying for 6 months.
Saw the doctor this week and my partner and I are being sent for re-tests of everything as it's been a year since the last lot. We should then get so proper he4lp and advice on what can help us from there. All the tests last time were fine so fingers crossed they are fine again.
I am due to have af show her face anytime from today I have fingers crossed she doesn't but I have a nasty sinking feeling it won't be this month again. We are both so ready for a baby of our own, everyone around us seems to be having a baby with no problems. I don't worry about it so much anymore and just let things happen but i still get upset and disappointed when it doesn't happen.
